Our Story

The Friendship Missionary Baptist Church Social Justice Ministry was launched as a proposal to our senior minister, Dr. Clifford A. Jones, Sr. in 2010 by its first trainer and chair, Dr. Carrie W. Gibson. It was outgrowth of a project called Achieve Together funded by a generous grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The  project was awarded to and facilitated by Lee Institute of Charlotte. The first Social Justice meeting was held February 20, 2011 at Friendship Missionary Baptist, 3301 Beatties Ford Road, Charlotte.

The intent was to develop a mechanism of advocacy with the Charlotte Mecklenburg community to address disparities within the educational system, political agendas, community health and welfare, information on viable food resources and the overall well-being of citizens.
